I'm Definitely cosplaying him at Otakon, and I might at Anime USA if I can't get Karasu done in time.

Dangit, I wanted to cosplay older Koenma too, because I already have a wig!

Idly started working on my mini Pinkie Pie Pirate Hat tonight, instead of, y'know, doing the grown up stuff I should be doing, like cleaning the house, or watching the Superbowl.

It's based on her cute little pillbox hat from the Grand Galloping Gala. I found the perfect pale blue Venice lace for it on e-bay for an absolute steal (5 yards for $6, including shipping.) and I'm currently assembling the base for it out of scrap cardboard. Hopefully no one tries to look inside the hat - it's going to be made of Veggie Bacon and Veggie corndog boxes... it's what I had on hand...
Convention Line-Up: Dragon*Con 2016
Planned Costumes:
Scarlet Witch (All New All Different Marvel), Jayna (Wonder Twins, Super Friends),
Fix-it Faerie (Original Design), 1950s Housewife Bill Cipher (Gravity Falls... ish)

Yea for Sakyo! Very excited for this~

I have approached the final hours of Syaoran's cloak completion. I just have to sew on the hood and add the button decals to the strap in front.

Let's do this.

Productive at last.

Last year, I did a closet cosplay that was....well....crappy is putting it mildly. I finally got to the point where I sewed a new bustle...well...it's more of a side skirt? But it serves as a bustle. So I'm content.

I improved... drastically.

Now to get decent photos, if possible.

Its not how tragically we suffer, but how miraculously we live.
This above all: to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.

Debating on if I should purchase another wig (that I may need) right now or later to ensure that it comes on time. But at the same time, trying NOT to spend money (since I've already spent quite a bit).

Well, I put new buttons on the opposite side of the jacket, and put in new button holes where the old buttons were. I am now a part of the I HATE BUTTON HOLES! tribe. Boy did I ever throws a tantrum when things got sour, I cut too far in on the first button hole, mismeasured, and spilled a drop of white cloth paint on the black jacket. I now have a headache from repeated IRL headdesks. On an actual desk.

Not only do I NOT have a work station, I keep carting my project back and forth between home and a friends (because food and friendship), so I'm very 'sew on the go.'

The jacket has new buttons, new holes, and now comes the part where I put in all the white stitches front and back. *crosses herself.* God, give me patience for this one.

Did I mention everything I do is by hand? Did I also mention I hate button holes?

I really hate being so anal-retentive sometimes. >_< It would take no time at all, but I just decided to remake Saturn's collar with a facing so it snaps on the inside of the neckline for a better fit and more authentic sailor collar look once my fresh batch of purple sateen comes in. At least this will come in handy when it comes time to make Super Saturn's collar.

I'm so happy with how the new hiproll on the skirt turned out though, and thank god no new skirt is required for Super Saturn. I admit I'm a bit excited to make new leotards, too, serging lycra is almost therapeutically relaxing to me and the only awful bit is putting in the leg elastic. I look forward to Saturn's new and improved petals, the pattern for the petals themselves is perfect so all that requires is a flexible but durable and strong stuffing. Maybe I'll experiment with some craft foam. I also look forward to the sheer comfort of Super Saturn's shoulder sleeves, my sewing mentor just happened to have an amazing super-fine polyfill stuffing I used for the hiproll that not only doesn't clump, but is so very heavenly cushy.

I decided to do a little cosplay shopping this weekend. I bought 5 yds of muslin to make a mock-up kimono with. I want to make sure I know how much fabric I'm going to need to make a yukata or other kimono for me. I think I'm going to get some more muslin sometime soon so I can work on some hakama too. Better to practice on something else before getting the real fabric!

Having a hard time choosing the next character I want to cosplay. I tend to challenge myself in everything I do, and this is just another one of those times. Lelouche as Zero, Kirito, Ino Yamanaka or Asuna. Tough decisions for me.

All the stuff I ordered on ebay should be here later this week or the next (paypal sends it all to my house and my mom ships it to me at school once everything arrives)
So I've got my Zelda wig, my Sakura wig, my Sakura headband base, and my pattern for sakura's shirt coming
Gotta buy interfacing and a zipper and then I'm so poor it's not even a joke!

But I'm so excited to finally get started on my costume that I can hardly stand it!! Must wait till after midterms though ;_;

My poor bank account! But now at least I know how much is left in my budget for my wig, the shoes and the two props I have to make for Kaname and Stocking.

Joanns send me some coupons so I can start on these props!

Now besides that problem, I need to find time to work on them. Damn you college assignments!
